    Re: Fighting Erupts in Tripoli

    Here is an article.

    Nation and World News*| ajc.com

    I think they are just waiting to see what Qudhaffi does now. People are dancing in the streets, and his sons have been captured. They are on the hunt to locate Qudhaffi now, and securing the rest of the capital.

    Hopefully his reign comes to an end soon... I am kind of surprised how successful the Libyan rebels have been. I didn't really think it would end this fast. The people are brave to keep fighting despite the risks. Iran is teetering as well.

    I was looking for an article - my computer's challenged (can't watch anything right now). . . tomorrow there will probably be more written coverage beyond what's been posted here.

    Since tomorrow is Monday, I am sure there will be a lot of coverage... CNN's coverage didn't have any of their familiar faces or personalities. CNN's coverage was really awful, I have to say.

    Is this a “mission accomplished” moment or are we in this one for the long haul?

    I'm surprised too. It took them so long to slog through territory that was purportedly more friendly to them. Then they just sliced through that last stretch which should have been most loyal to Daffy. Suggests to me that Daffy had little backing even in his region of traditional support.

    Is that what Big Brother told you to think?

    Ah yes - armed militias and bombing people into democracy, all the trademarks of
    a U.S. led color revolution.
